I am what you would call a ‘casual’ fan of the band. I have heard all the glowing praise of their live show for years now and still wasn’t prepared for how great this concert was. The band casually ambled onstage to soundcheck. Some entrance? Frontman Wayne Coyne even addressed the audience and explained how he was going to come out into the crowd in the ‘space bubble’. Jeez, talk about spoiler alert, there goes the element of surprise. Well, it didn’t matter when he and the band did start the show a few minutes later, it was just unbelievable. I have never, and will never see a start of a concert like that again. It was amazing. The rest of the night was cool as well. Great music, great stage show, and those trains! A bunch more photos here and here.
Just posting a few mid-week updates.
This has got to be one of the most anticipated concerts of the summer. They put on one crazy show that gloriously celebrates their psychedelic insanity. This undoubtedly will be a ton of fun.
As always, thanks to the people of Drusky Entertainment. Entering is easy. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘The Flaming Lips’. In the message, supply the full name you want for the folks at will call the night of the show which will be good for two tickets. Sorry, parking not included. One entry per person.
This contest will run until Saturday July 17 when the winner will be randomly picked and contacted. Also remember, next Sunday starts a new contest for a different show. Good luck!
